Rodenstock UK at 100% Optical 2020

OT  speaks to Rodenstock UK’s David Baker

Rodenstock UK highlighted its Biometric Intelligent Glasses (BIG) programme during 100% Optical last month.

The company’s managing, David Baker, explained that the tool, which aims to provide patients with a bespoke lens designed specifically for them, is driven by a DNI scanner that captures 7000 measurements, puts the results into a data set and uses them during the manufacturing of the lenses.

“We can use those measurements to make the product a better fit for the patient.” Mr Baker shared, adding: “It is a bespoke product. The more bespoke you make the product, the better it is.”
